What You Can Expect
Meat lovers will find many dishes to delight their taste buds when it comes to the Hungarian diet. But don’t despair, vegetarians: peppers, eggplant and other seasonal veggies also play a key role in recipes, and traditional plates like stuffed pancakes are often filled with rich cheeses.
Your next stop will be at a local café, where you can try out freshwater fish and delicious chocolate made in Pest. Then cleanse your palette with a Hungarian spritzer while discussing the popular drink list in Budapest.
Afterward, burn a few calories with a stroll to the Jewish Quarter, where you can admire the Great Synagogue and the area’s kosher bakeries and pastry shops. You’ll stop to sample traditional Jewish treats before making your way to the final stop.
As you cross the famous Andrássy Avenue, a noted UNESCO World Heritage site, you’ll conclude your tour in an establishment close to St. Stephen’s Basilica. Savor Hungary's signature dish of dumplings and goulash before you go.

Livia was a wonderful guide. The Central Market is amazing and she was very knowledgeable about local culture and cuisine. If you're a foodie, don't miss this one,
A great way to tour the city. Starting at the city market, tasting local sausage and cheese, then sweets at a chocolate shop, fish soup and matso soup in the Jewish quarter, ending up with goulash and strudel. A wonderful experience!
Really, really enjoyed the food walking tour. It lasted longer than I expected and I had more than enough to eat - great variety of samples that gives you a good insight into the Hungarian food. My guide Agnes was extremely knowledgeable, but most importantly it was very evident that she truly cared about her job as a guide and showing tourists the local food scene. She provided so much information on my tour about the food and other historical/cultural facts. The places we went to were all so neat and quaint, nothing commercial. This tour did not feel touristy at all, it felt very personalized and Agnes was extremely pleasant. This is definitely a must do in order to get more familiarized with the area, learn about its history, and taste some great food! I will definitely do a similar tour with her on my new visit to Budapest!
A great tour our guest de livid was knowledgeable and passionate about Hungary and its cuisine. She answered all our questions and gave us ideas of where we could go to eat.

I tried a huge variety of food, and very much enjoyed the time with Agnes chatting.

A fabulous tour! Agnes our guide was absolutely amazing....really one of the best weve ever had, and to date we've enjoyed very many Viator tours!. A wonderful informative tour experiencing local tastes, authentic areas, typical restaurants, breathtaking sights, magnificent landmarks, historical places and modern venues....a perfectly designed tour to familiarise oneself with the city. And Agnes went above and beyond to make it so special for us....and with only 2 of us, it turned out to be a private tour, we couldnt have wished for more. Highly recommended, do it!!
It was an excellent Tour. Our guide, she was passionate about her work and Budapest, knew the history easy to be with and the stopping points were off the beaten path. The food was awesome.
Great tour highly recommend it.
Great tour and a greater guide! My sister and I have an absolutely amazing time on the Budapest Walking Tour. We were given great insights into the history of Budapest, it's culture and it's food. We were able to sample multiple local delicacies and spend an equal amount of time taking in the sights as well as eating food.
Our guide Agnes was lovely. She made an extra effort to personalize the experience for us when she got to know our personal interests. We truly loved spending the afternoon with her!
I highly recommend this to anyone interested in eating and having a great time.
We highliy enjoyed this. Judith, although it was her first tour, gave us an experience we will never forget. Great way to get to know Budapest.
Loved this tour! Agnes was an absolutely wonderful guide. She took us to a series of delightful places and was really open about talking about her experiences food-related and otherwise living in Budapest, so we were able to get a truly unique perspective on the city and country's history. She even followed up later by emailing some further recommendations for places to check out in the city, as well as recipes for Hungarian foods we'd sampled. Highly recommended!
